Senju Kannon

Thousand-Armed Kannon, or Kannon with a Thousand Arms and a Thousand Eyes. One of Japan’s most beloved esoteric forms of Kannon. From the 8th century onward in Japan, Senju Kannon was worshipped independently as a central object of devotion, often prayed to for avoiding illness, eye problems, and blindness. Senju is also one of Six Kannon who protect people in the six realms of karmic rebirth. As one of the six, Senju Kannon watches over the realm of hungry ghosts. Devotion to the Six Kannon appears to date from the early 10th century.
